Mission and Program Educational Objectives

Consistent with the mission of the University, the mission of the Department of Engineering Technology is to produce two-year and four-year graduates with the breadth and depth of knowledge in engineering technology to become lifelong productive members of the regional workforce and the local society. The Pre-Engineering program has a single educational objective as follows: Prepare students to successfully complete an engineering degree program at an institution of their choice


Departmental faculty members serve as advisors to students who plan to study engineering. Students who complete the two-year program may enter most engineering schools as a junior.

The pre-engineering program provides technical courses in computer drafting, computer programming, and all the English, mathematics, and science courses generally required in the first two years of an engineering curriculum. When you complete the pre-engineering program, you may transfer to a college of engineering at another university or complete a degree in a related area at Northwestern.
